Legal Definition and Related Resources of Lake

Meaning of Lake

Fresh-water lakes are bodies of standing water distinguishable from rivers chiefly by the fact that they have no current. The fact that there is a current from a higher to a lower level does not make that a river which would otherwise be a lake, nor does a lake lose its distinctive character because there is a current in it for a certain distance tending towards a river which forms its outlet. Gould Waters, § 79.
